I’m talking about the WIND and the SUN.
Not only will air temperatures go up and down in the winter, but so will the water temperatures.
These fish are going to move around accordingly.
If you don’t move around with them, you’ll have tough days out on the water.
The sun plays an overlooked role in wintertime planning.
It determines if the water temperature will slightly rise in areas depending on how exposed the sun is.
On a sunny day, the water temperatures will increase and the fish will tend to move up shallow to feed.
If the sun is blocked on a cloudy day, lots of times those fish will stay deep.
The bottom line with the wind is looking for wind-protected areas – always!
Wind causes water temperatures to drop in affected areas.
Fish are looking for the warmest possible water in the winter.
The ultimate recipe here is to combine the wind and sun to have them both in your favor in a given spot.
Everyone has their favorite redfish lures.
But for me, I’m always going to grab a small shrimp imitation.
Pretty much everything eats a shrimp and that is what’s most abundant during winter.
Our Prawn USA Junior is my go-to lure.
If I’m fishing in less than 3 feet of water, I’ll use a super light jighead.
Any deeper than 3 feet, and I’ll go with a Hoss Weedless Football Jigheads.
The weight there will determine on current speed and depth.
